2020 was a year of milestones for the Green Tour including the Green Tour’s 20th Anniversary and the first-ever virtual event. The beauty of a virtual event is that it lives on for us to enjoy event after the event has passed.
Now more than ever, locally and globally, we need enhanced environmental stewardship, affordability, health, comfort, and durability associated with the homes and buildings that we live and work in. In Bend, 57% of our carbon emissions comes from the energy that our buildings consume. If we are going to make an impact, we need bold, collaborative, innovative action starting now.
